Leading Women’s Plus Size Clothing Designers

Leading Women's Plus Size Clothing Designers

Anna Scholz is a well know and respected label in the fashion industry.  Anna was born in Germany and moved to London in 1990 where she started sewing lessons and work as a plus size model. Anna’s career as a fashion designer really excelled when Lane Bryant bought her first collection to showcase in their 10 best stores.  Anna launched her own label soon after and began to exhibit her women’s plus size designer clothing line to the world.  In 2009 Anna created her own website and launched her online shop exclusively for plus sizes selling a beautiful women’s plus size clothing line suitable for all age groups. The plus size clothing line includes women’s plus size dresses, plus size bottoms, plus size tops, plus size coats and jackets.

The Anne Harvey plus size designer label specialises in plus sizes between size 16-32 and  is owned by “Alexon” a popular shop that carries exclusive women’s plus size clothing lines that offer exceptional quality garments. I have carried out a little research on this label and from the little information available I know the label has originated from Anne Whitney born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania  in 1919 moving to New York in a position as a model at Harvey Berin in 1938. Berin offered Anne in house training as a designer as he realised her natural flair for fashion and for detail. In 1940 Anne married Tom Fogarty and continue to work in the fashion industry.

In 1950 Anne worked for Youth Guild and deigned a full skirted dress that later became her signature look. In 1957 Anne Fogarty became an in-house designer for Saks Fifth Avenue and opened her own firm, Anne Fogarty, Inc in 1962. The business closed in the 1970s although some labels survived through the work of her long-time business partner under the “Leonard Sunshine” label. Even after retirement Anne continued to design and finished a collection for Shariella Fashion only months before her passing in January 1981 in New York City.

The Lane Bryant Label has been around for over 100years and still leads the way in women’s plus size clothing industry today. I have an article dedicated to the achievements of Lane Bryant and the women’s plus size designer clothing line for anyone interested in a little History Of The Lane Bryant Label needless to say she will always be remembered for her contribution to the women’s fashion industry.
